View Full Version : Oil-free dressings
10-17-2008, 06:44 PM
Hey all, I'm trying to find a dressing (ranch, blue cheese, ceasar etc.) that doesn't have oil in it...I'm trying a more "whole" approach : )
I want something nut-based. I remember seeing a couple recipes around but I can't for the life of me find them!
If anyone has any ideas or links, please let me know!

Maybe try replacing the oil in a dressing recipe with walnuts and maybe a bit of water if needed? They blend to a pretty liquid consistency.

You can replace the oil with blended avocado, too.

The problem is I really want something that will store for at least 3 days (You usually have to make dressings in more than 1/2 cup amounts to get it to blend) and avocado just won't make it. I'll try the walnuts for sure! Perhaps I'll just wing it, add extra almonds or something. :)

some tahini, some raw apple vinger and some honey. blend. sorry about the proportions, i just taste along the way.

Thanks muppet, sounds good!
I'm interested in this thread, too. Nothing wrong with oil, but it can be expensive sometimes.

The Body Ecology Diet Book has a couple of oil-free salad dressing recipes. The are based on ACV, so I'm pretty sure to not like them, but I'm going to try a variation today. They use Xanthan Gum as a thickening agent.
